Oil rigs are a very important part of our economy. Oil rigs should stop importing oil , it makes the gas prices soar through the roof. If they just reserved all this oil they drilled, our gas would probably be around two dollars. We should depend on oil rigs here in the America. :)
There has been to many disastrous events to name from off shore drilling. Such as the Gulf Of Mexico Oil spill, An oil rig sunk and spilled over 4 million barrels of Oil leaked into the ocean, causing horrible effects on the ocean. This isnt the first time this has happened, and we should not continue to let it keep happening.
It is dangerous to depend on other countries for oil. As it has been shown in history, oil producing countries can simply refuse to sell it if they do not agree with America's foreign policy. We should develop domestic energy resources so that we can be independent and not rely on other coutries' erratic decisions.
